We rescued George and Agnes from being euthanized in a Los Angeles shelter just over two weeks ago and, though they were receiving loving care, they both had to overcome illness to be healthy enough to make the journey to Colorado. Well, that journey has begun!
This morning, Pilots n Paws volunteer pilot, Eric, met up with our wonderful foster-moms, America and Maria, at El Monte Aiport, just east of Los Angeles … and UP THEY WENT!
We’re especially grateful to Eric for generously donating his time, skills, and airplane! And by the way, Eric’s co-pilot is his wife Agnes – that’s who we named our little Agnes after! Digit is another important part of the team – she’s an adorable little white Chihuahua who always travels with Eric and Agnes (a rescue dog, of course) .. and most importantly, she goes along on freedom flights providing moral support for the dogs they transport for Pilots n Paws. Isn’t that awesome?!!
Once they arrive in Tucson, George and Agnes will be met by another of our wonderful volunteers, Peggy, who will drive the rest of the journey to Harley’s House of Hope in Colorado. Stay tuned for more updates!
